to make the case of former president george w. bush and his heart procedure as a cent example. if mr. bush visited a general intern nift practicing sound-based care, he would not have had cardiac testing. what value does a stress test have for an otherwise healthy 67-year-old? no study has shown that this examination improvens outcomes. follow-up test, only necessary, because of the initial unnecessary screening tests are usually paid for by medicine. further stressing our health care system. he's commending the efforts of the former president's doctors. dr. siegel, a profoefrs medicine at new york university's lamedil center. >> physicians should not be speculating wildly about facts they don't have. doctors doing, that oncologists saying he should have a colonoscopy, not a stress test. in um number one, he was having some symptoms and one third of all heart attacks occur in people with atypical systmptoms like h was having. number two, someone vigorously exercising is a candidate for it. his diet in the white house wasn't the best. there was a pastry chef there. there were questions. the
was incredibly reasonable last night when discussing the nsa and i think if you replaced him with george bush, nobody would be complaining. george bush would have said the same. >> not on jay leno. >> you act like a hypocrite, you condemn him because it came out of his mouth. having said that, there's an overwhelming amount of chaos inside and outside this country. president obama takes on the role of a calm pilot, weaving the plane through the storm. the problem is his policies. you can argue about being on jay leno. that's not the problem, the problem is he should be doing something about bigger issues like joblessness, which is a fact that he is not at all engaged in the fracking issue which would do a lot to reduce strife in the middle east, lower the four buck, five gallon buck of gas. not ragging on him for playing basketball. what a bunch of baby games. >> i push back a little, too. i don't have a problem with him playing golf on free time, but when you close 22 embassies, pull that many american diplomats off line. >> he hasn't come out in an official presidential press conference to

how george bush was treated? i just think the signage and language and history is so much deeper and these images are so much more insensitive than anything that george bush faced. >> but i think the really important comparison is to back to the last democratic president who made republicans crazy with hate for him. so lfb i images like that are racist, but i don't think republicans hate him because he's black, but because he's a democratic president, and a lot of the discussion gets built around his race. republicans would tell you that he had orchestrated the murder of vince foster and he was a rapist and all these other horrible thing. >> i think that's very different that go home, you're 47% kneelingo and go home, kenyan. these are cultural stereotypes, rachellely inflammatory. >> i mostly agree with what josh said i think the hatred comes first and then you use everything you have, but there are some things unique. we have people questioning whether he was born in the united states. it goes on, if you look at polls in more nan 5% of people i think the color of his skin, the

. this must be fixed. this is a problem that even former president george w. bush was concerned about in his first address to a joint congress. >> earlier today i asked john ashcroft, the attorney general, to develop specific recommendations to end racial profiling. it's wrong and we will end it in america. in so doing we will not hinder the work of our nation's brave police officers. they protect us every day. often at great risk. but by stopping -- [ applause ] but by stopping the abuses of a few, we will add to the public confidence our police officers earn and deserve. >> heeding the president's call for action, michigan congressman john conyers helped sponsor the end racial profiling act back in 2001. the act, though, never made it out of committee. for vote on the house floor. since 2001, congressman conyers has been reintroducing the same bill each and every year. and each and every year, the same thing happens. here he is earlier this week. >> i want to make one thing clear. we were working on the reintroduction before the trayvon martin tragedy. and the george zimmerman acquittal. s

. when george bush involved us and the supposedly illegal wars in iraq and afghanistan, trampling the constitution as we heard incessantly from democrats, he sought and got in the afghan war and in the iraq war a debate in congress and a vote of authorization. and now what we're hearing from the democrats with utter shameless hypocrisy, this administration is not required to do it. look, the main question that boehner was asking is, is all of this to send a message, to which i would say if you want to send a message, call western union. you don't use tomahawk missiles and engage in war. war is a serious thing. that's why it should be debated in the congress. >> the bush administration also had a united nations resolution as well. juan? >> i think it is very important to say for all of the verbiage we just saw from speaker boehner, speaker boehner, you know, senate majority reid, neither is calling for vote or asking for this to happen. all that you read off, there was no request for speaker boehner for an actual vote. if you can imagine a debate in congress over u.s. military acti
to go in, get it done. the reason it lasted so long, we're in there, not getting the george bush done. you either do it or you don't, on the side of backing off and waiting, there is 116 bipartisan, we sent a letter to president obama asking him to wait. president obama isn't on the hill meeting with people. he will be there tonight. he hasn't been there all week or the past year. and this is something they're saying you need to slow down because there are implications for what we're going to do here. >> it's hard to figure out where we're going to start. first of all, you are saying these islamists are killing -- >> women and children are on the line, they're dying. >> some say muslim extremists killing muslim extremists. >> their children are in the hospital. be i the way, iraq, we lost 10,000 people in iraq and spent trillions of dollars. >> we don't know who is doing it. we are hearing through a report that israel, it's the syrian government. we don't know that for sure. can we listen, this is axelrod saying, describing the difference between syria and iraq. >> this is no differen
, by george h.w. bush, by the clinton administration. they almost never work and they're almost always counterproductive. you wind up rattling the cage of what's already an angry animal, and you wind up with more terrorism and more action on the ground. the other point that fouad made that's very important is that bashar al assad probably feels he's in patrol of the situation. i don't think we can dismiss the possibility that he carried out these attacks because of the american warnings, knowing the response would be limited and by his terms the american image would be one of inadequacy. >> you look at that vote in england and the way everybody is looking at syria, it's impossible to escape the specter of iraq. everybody seems to be looking at this through the lens of iraq. >> you're exactly right. the shadow of iraq hangs over this. but everybody has overused iraq. i'll give you one precedent which barack obama would opt for, and in a way it would see us to a proper conclusion, a good conclusion. look at kosovo in 1999. it was waged by a dove. bill clinton has never been viewed as a w
. so did former presidents bill clinton and jamie carter. presidents george w. bush and george h.w. bush were not there, spokesmen saying health issues kept them from attending today. dr. king's speech capped off a historic push for civil rights in our nation's capital known as the march on washington for jobs and freedom. a look now, though, at the jobs numbers a half century later blacks are nearly three times more likely than whites to live in poverty according to a pew research center study. that trend has remained the same since the 1970s. the study shows 34% of white adults have finished college compared to 21% of blacks. also considered to the study nearly 50% of americans say our nation still needs to do a lot more to achieve racial equality. this year the white house is honoring the man who organized the march on washington. biyard rustin, forced to the background in his civil rights victories, because he was apparently black and gay. he's on the right side of this picture with dr. king in the center. the story is rustin planned the march in 10 weeks. to give you an idea
feels like this is an echo of the iraq war issue under president george w. bush. he says "in a way, yes. then, too, the americans and their allies asked for inspections. then, too, they said, forget it. we have enough evidence on our own to act. we are the world police." only last march" he says "the west was satisfied with inspections concerning the use of chemical weapons. why can't they wait again now? in one month when you have accurate tissue samples, we will know for sure exactly what kind of chemical weapons have been used and who possesses such weapons." he's asked of the difference between president obama on this issue and the lead-up to the iraq war. hans blix said president obama some time ago talked about international legality. i was heartened by that. i feel the politics of the moment are pushing him in a direction we've seen before in the united states." "if the aim is to stop the breach of international law and to keep the lid on others with chemical weapons, military action without first waiting for the u.n. inspector report is not the way to go about it." if you have e
. >>> president george bush is still recovering from a blockage in his heart. as some health experts or officials are pointing out, there may be good in the doctor's discovery and not just for the former commander in chief. cnn's tom foreman covers that in this "american journey." >> reporter: in office and out, george w. bush has been regarded as many as the most fit president ever, mountain biking, running, swimming, golfing, weight lifting and laboring on his ranch. his annual physicals while in office found him in excellent health with no history of hypertension or diabetes and low to very low coronary artery disease risk. when physicians instert certificat inserted a stent, some people were sur viced. >> people should not assume that just because they exercise a lot they don't necessarily have a heart problem. >> reporter: he wrote a book on the impact of celeb pretty health issues called when illness goes public. when famous people face illness, this is the good that almost always follows. public awareness and action rises sharply. when former first lady betty ford disclosed she had breast
. >> a former white house political director under president george w. bush, and maxwell, a democratic strategist and contributor for ebony.com, thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, heather. >> just to summaryize, the idea is to freeze the current undocumented -- in place, give them work permits and perhaps for a better deal under the next president. the move would not be without precedent for this administration. stopped the deportation of hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth through its deferred action program. politically some argue that all president obama needs to implement plan b is proof congress can't get the job done. matt, is this a possibility? and what is the fallout? >> you know, heather, i guess obama would never surprise me by doing something like this with so many other things he's done. he believes in raw president shshl power. i think it would be a massive mistake. i think democratic leadership would be very upset about this. it would be in essence taking this issue out of the hands of the elected officials in congress whose job it is to adjudicate on t
political career substantially on opposition to the iraq war and criticism of george w. bush did not allow un weapons inspectors to work through. syria and iraq called it a dumb war in iraq. and made his way politically off of that initial attack. what is interesting for the president, he is going to have to retreat to the same arguments that george bush and others would if he launches a military incursion in to syria. >> and also the issue of russia and iran. russia issued a warning of sorts, don't act to quickly and let the un weapons inspection play out and we have seen mistakes in the past by the u.s. we have a complicated relationship with the russian leaders. whatever he does in syria impacts them or iraq, and that may not be a show down he is not ready for. >> whatever relationship that exists tone president obama and president putin in russia will not help. that but the challenge to the president. the prime minister of britain, and david cameron and president of france, they are making the noise, let's bomb, let's bomb. and they want to repeat it would seem western powers did under
me say, george bush kept a picture of people with the cards, he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >>
country the case had to be made all the way up to condoleezza rice. and then that had to go up to george bush who had to approve it as the president has to approve the rendition. the only way costelli could get approval is if silt vee yo berlusconi was on board of with it, and the head of the cia was on board with it. the italians had to be the law enforcement group on the ground to arrest. >> they had to be the ones to grab him? >> they had to be the ones to arrest him, and then turn him over to the americans. that's the we it was supposed to function. the italian intelligence decided they were not going to be part of this. and silvio burr leerlusconi sai absolutely not. they didn't have the authority to do this for berlusconi. they were not allowed to be involved in renditions. and finally, they also discovered a few weeks later, that the italian law enforcement had omar under surveillance for two years. and they could not disrupt -- >> they picked up because -- >> they were not allowed by law to disrupt that investigation. >> if jeffrey costelli was the architect of this whole plan, h
, check this out. george w. bush had done 89 press conferences. clinton 133. and obama? only 79. the fact is, president obama never stopped being in campaign mode and that was evident last night. it's the only thing he has really done well. so, shall we look forward to another slow jam with jimmy fallon during the debt ceiling debate? anything he says in this type of forum as entertaining as it might be ends up being trivialized. part of a nonstop celebrity tri that dumbs down issues and insulates the president from proper journalistic inquirery. -- inquiry. a brand new fox news poll shows that 52% of registered voters disapprove of the job obama is doing. that matches his previous record of a high disapproval rating in september 2010. his approval rating also takes a hit this week 42% approve, that's down from 46% at the end of last month. now, on to reaction. you add that to president obama's changing tune on the war on terror, and what do you have? joining us now from l.a., christian widen, a former state department senior advisor under president george w. bush and here in the studio w

speech saying that george bush was the big bully and i was going to turn the page and it was going to be hope, love and rainbows for the whole world. that wasn't me campaigning. we have a president of the united states that came in under a big promise of bolstering u.s.' image around the world and our approval around the world is going down not going up. and the place place is in chaos over the president to say it's complicated. it's a weak response it shows his response is nonsensical. >> what's the response. >> lindsey graham and john mccain is right for us to send $1.3 billion over there when they are using that money to kill people in the streets, that probably isn't such a good thing to keep doing. that's one idea but, you know, i'm not president. >> well, but if you take that money away and destabilize the military over there, we're talking about a massive country on the border with israel. ask the israelis what they think about us continuing to support the military. >> laura: you mean, it's difficult but that's why is he president. up next, why has president obama continued
without white people voting? absolutely not. number two, people have amnesia. people hated george bush. people hated bill clinton. it was personal, it was about their party, it was about their beliefs, but no one said i don't like him because he is from arkansas or from texas or he is from connecticut. i think when people look at barack obama, they love his policies, they hate his think hate him. and i don't see the resentment because he's black. i don't see it. >> i want to see this movie, i absolutely want to see it. i understand it is very entertaining. i also understand it is loosely based on fact, more based on fiction. the butler -- >> i know who he is. >> not from georgia, he is from virginia. mom wasn't raped by a white man, father wasn't killed by the white man that raped his mom. it seems like they're playing a lot of race cards. >> talked to a friend of mine in the white house, he reminded me who this guy was, and then i remembered him. i didn't know about his background or anything about the story. he was a pleasant guy, had been there a long time, many of the people as da
